Right now this minute, now I’ve seen Sam Smith I mean, the two people I most wanna see on stage are Meghan Trainor and Banks. Meghan has no upcoming concert and Banks is sold out and though, sure I could pay Stubhub $50 and would do only…
1. It is a Tuesday in a busy week and worse
2. It is a sold out T5.
In plain English, the timing ain’t there.
The two don’t have much in common.
I like Banks a lot, she has a way with a song, try “Warm Water” and sustains a sky high level on her debut album Goddess. BUT, there is something a little not only but also so about her. There is something a little average or if not average, similar to everything that surrounds her. On any given week there are a number of Banks, Devs, Lights and Mapeis. All worth your time but who has enough time to listen to them all.
Meghan Trainor is something else again. Not only is she an extremely funny, powerful and witty woman, but at the age of 20, she has one indie (I mean really indie) album Only 17 (her BASSment tapes!), which I completely missed the first time around but right now stands as one of the most memorable works of the decade, beaten out by her debut EP Title.
Right now I am obsessed with Meghan, you probably know her from “I’m All About the Bass’ but that’s only one, every song she writes is great. Along with FKA twigs and Sam Smith, she is the star of 2014.
